3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
The aroma consists of roasted malt, sweet licorice, dark chocolate and coffee. The taste is fairly smooth but in it there is also a good bitterness. The flavors of coffee and roasted malt is nice and the alcohol contribute in a good way with a warm feeling. I would have preferred a slightly fuller body but this is clearly a good porter!
